UW-Extension uses blocks to teach parents and caregivers of young children how block play can be a fun and educational learning experience. The blocks are currently stored in two locations:
- Racine County UW-Extension in Burlington
- Marquette County UW-Extension in Montello
UW-Extension educators are invited to use the blocks for local community events. The block collection includes: keva planks, unit blocks, cube blocks, foam blocks, and cardboard blocks, a block party banner, and five informational boards.
